Influence At Work

By now some of you have noticed I've been posting twice a week. I'm going to make an attempt to have a short Thursday morning post each week to let you know about other resources that might interest you.

Some people might wonder why I'd promote someone else's work, especially if it's in the same field as mine. I've come to learn in the online world the principle of reciprocity is king. You help others, promote them, and they usually do the same for you. The online pie is plenty large enough that no one has to worry about getting their fair share.
This week I want to point you to Dr. Robert Cialdini and his organization, Influence At Work. Many of you reading this know he's the reason I became so intrigued with influence and ultimately started this blog. If you want to read more about my association with him click here.

Dr. Cialdini and several of his associates have a blog called Inside Influence Report. I'm not a doctor, and I don't play one on t.v., but these guys are doctors - in the field of social psychology - so they're worth listening to when it comes to mastering influence and persuasion. They do the social science research, dissect other scientist's research and break it all down so you can use the information to be more a more persuasive person. I highly recommend you check out Inside Influence Report for great insights on influence and persuasion.
